Welcome to the BTG Labs Materials Library series.
In this series, we use the Surface Analyst to demonstrate how the surface quality of a material changes based on common surface preparation processes. We also give typical contact angle measurements before and after processing, to give a general reference for each process as it pertains to the material.
This video demonstrates how the Surface Analyst gives you the ability to measure changes in composite preparation using an IPA wipe and abrasion with stearate-free sandpaper. These measurements are used to develop, verify, and monitor surface preparation processes in manufacturing.
Whether you're using the Surface Analyst in the lab, or in the hands of an operator on the factory floor, the Surface Analyst give you real-time business insights while dramatically improving quality control.
